Medal of Honor dismissed from active service

The Medal of Honor franchise has been discharged from active service, after the most recent instalment, 2012's Medal of Honor: Warfighter, received a poor critical and commercial reception.

EA COO Peter Moore told the publisher's investors that Medal of Honor has been pulled "out of the rotation" of regular games.

"We are taking Medal of Honor out of the rotation, and have a plan to bring year-over-year continuity to our shooter offerings," said Moore.

Moore admitted that Warfighter was an "obvious miss" but believed review scores were lower than the game deserved. The Xbox 360 version is currently sitting at 53 percent on review aggregating site Metacritic.

Havent played a MoH game since Pacific Assault, and still MOHAA is my all time favourite. TBH with CoD and BF on the market atm MoH wud've had to release something special to even stand a chance. Just a shame that todays standards are imo too high
its sad to see medal of honor pulled from rotation the games i think were pretty good but the critiques and reviews were pretty harsh on them. hopefully one day we will see MoH back :D
The last Moh was terrible.
I thought the reviews were 100% accurate. Warfighter was horrible. It's sad to see it go because some of my favourite shooters were the PS1 MOH games.
It has the potential to be awesome and should have been a great "improved" series. It seems like the time and general care wasn't there. It definitely seemed rushed.
